Western Washington University assistant debate coach
« on: January 13, 2020, 04:28:53 PM »
Hi everyone, Western Washington University is looking for an assistant debate coach for the upcoming season. A few key details to note: 1) The position entails both coaching and working with the debate team, and teaching undergraduate argumentation and debate courses. 2) The linked job search notice is only for applying for the coaching position (which is classified as a staff position), and thus only reflects the salary for that portion of the job. The classroom teaching portion of the job provides additional pay as well as full health benefits.  I'm happy to answer any questions and chat with people who might be interested, as would our ADoF and current assistants. You can reach me Travis.Cram@wwu.edu. There is a link to apply in the job description.

The call and instructions to apply can be located here: https://employment.wwu.edu/cw/en-us/job/497602/assistant-debate-coach

Hi everyone,

I wanted to update the information I circulated previously about the assistant debate coach position at Western Washington University. First, I recently learned we will be able to hire for two positions, each with identical qualifications, requirements, and pay.

Second, I wanted to clarify that the position comes with two different elements: a staff position for work related to debate team preparation, coaching, and travel; and a non-tenure track instructor position for teaching the undergraduate argumentation course. All total, the salary for the person who is hired is $40,000/year and includes benefits.

Third, I was advised by my chair to instruct applicants to apply for both jobs through the WWU hiring portal in order to expedite the selection and hiring of the applicant.

The link to the staff side of the coaching position is here: https://employment.wwu.edu/en-us/job/497602/assistant-debate-coach

The link to the teaching side of the coaching position is here: https://employment.wwu.edu/en-us/job/496158/communication-studies-nontenure-track-faculty-vacancy-pool

If you have any questions that I can answer about the position, our program, WWU, or Bellingham, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. My email is traviscram@gmail.
